ii. No. of order to be made based EOQ

iii. Net cost of stocks based on the EOQ

Solution

EOQ = √(aDCo/Ch)

= (2 x 1200000 x 1000)/100

= 489 units

i) No of order = 1200000/4899

= 244.9

≈ 245 Orders

ii) Net cost = DCo/Q + (½ QCh)

                  = 1200000 (1000) /4899 + ½ (4899)100 = 489,900
